FSU Medical School Influence Spreading Across State

By  | 

The influence of Florida State University's medical school is reaching further across the Sunshine State.

Right now the medical school has campuses in Tallahassee, Pensacola, Orlando and Sarasota.

The Legislature has just approved two new campuses in Fort Pierce and Daytona.

Officials say the plan is for the medical school to be community based, as well as convenient for students.

"Students can go to medical school for two years in Tallahassee and then if they are from another part of the state they can spend the last two years at home or maybe closer to where they eventually want to practice medicine," says Nancy Kinnally, Director of Communications with the FSU Medical School.

Kinnally says now the university is awaiting approval of the new sites from Gov. Bush.
